Trucks of the first aid convoy sent by the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation for Syrian civilians started to reach border gates on Saturday.
IHH sent the first convoy of 33 trucks laden with 850 tons of flour to Syrian civilians on Thursday as part of the "bread and blanket for Syria" campaign.
Osman Atalay, deputy head of the IHH, said that there was a human tragedy in Aleppo and other provinces in Syria and Syrian people needed help.
